    Currently I'm listening to 12 Rules for Life by Dr. Jordan B Peterson and it's been eye opening. Currently I'm on the rule about Tell the Truth, or At Least Don't Lie and it goes into a lot of detail about the lies we tell ourselves. I also really enjoyed Mel Robbin's books. Many other wonderful ones have been mentioned so I don't want to be repetitive.

    Brilliant choice! I started up an e-Commerce business last year and his insights have been helpful. By any chance do you know of any other books that are similar to Shoe Dog and relate to E-com?

    The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas has always been a favorite of mine. Classic revenge tale of a man wrongly accused, imprisoned and tortured, escapes and acquires a fortune to exact revenge on those who wronged him.

    It's an extremely long book reaching over 1000 pages.

    I just finished the audiobook and it's AMAZING! He's one tough guy. He has a great mindset that plenty of people can learn from and apply to their every day lives, including business. What's great about the audiobook is that it features parts where David and the narrator talk about specific moments and elaborate even more on the situation. I recommend this book 100% :)

    I loved reading David Goggins story. Am excited to discuss.

    Really hoping for Atomic Habits. Picked up the audio book not long ago.

    I've read the Go Giver before.

    Here it is in six lines.

    To be successful you need to be a 'go giver' and not a 'go getter.' Follow these laws and you'll find success:
    1. The Law of Value: Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
    2. The Law of Compensation: Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
    3. The Law of Influence: Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people's interests first.
    4. The Law of Authenticity: The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
    5. The Law of Receptivity: The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
    It's a good book. You can read it in under two hours. Very popular by Amway multi level marketers.

    How to Get Rich by Felix Dennis

    [​IMG]

    I'm planning to re-read it soon so it would be cool to discuss it on the forum. It's one of my personal top 3 business books. It's actually very similar to the Millionaire Fastlane in some aspects.

    Same here. Excellent insights into his business and mindset in a totally no bull sh*t manner. Sadly no longer with us.
